Infographic - America’s failing Infrastructure
December 12, 2013. For decades, educators have compared today’s American Empire with the great Roman Empire of antiquity.

Obama Administration issues Martial Law Directive
December 11, 2013. Washington. Bureaucrats and politicians will never use the term Martial Law. Instead, the phrase ‘continuity of government’ is substituted. In reality, they’re the same thing.

Edward Snowden wins 2013 Free Press Peace Prize
December 10, 2013. With a track record like the Nobel Peace Prize has had lately, perhaps it’s a good thing that there’s another international peace prize that focuses on actual peace activists and not mesmerizing celebrities.

Will Paris Hilton put a Hit on Lindsay Lohan?
December 9, 2013. Miami. When famous billionaires get beat within an inch of their life, it’s not the result of a carefully planned PR campaign.

The race to find Edward Snowden’s Doomsday Cache
December 6, 2013. Moscow. No whistleblower in recent US history has exposed more government corruption and criminal activity than former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

But what’s in it?
US conflicts spread to the Moon, include Nukes
December 5, 2013. When China launched its unmanned Moon rover named Jade Rabbit on Monday, it showed the nation’s ability to match the US, Russia and Japan in terms of space exploration.

Mainstream News Networks lost half their Viewers
December 3, 2013. Atlanta. Two years ago, Gallup released a sparsely reported statistic showing that for the first time, more than half the American people no longer trusted American media outlets to tell them the truth.

Trickle Up Economics and expanding Social Security
December 2, 2013. After 30 years, it seems evident that the Republican Party’s favorite platform position of all time – Trickle Down Economics – has been a catastrophic failure and has been slowly destroying America’s economic viability. Now, Democrats like Senators Tom Harkin and Elizabeth Warren are coming forward, insisting it’s their turn. Their idea? Trickle Up Economics.
The unlucky 7 Animals going Extinct before our Eyes
December 1, 2013. There’s always been great disagreement over the crossroads where humans overlap with nature. Experts estimate that billions of animal species have gone extinct, the vast majority before mankind set foot on planet Earth.
